Weekends are precious and this one was no exception. The plan of action was ‘no plans at all’ and I think they always end up being the best ones.
Saturday saw an impromptu get together with my 2 best friends & their husbands (still don’t feel old enough to say that) and ended up being a classic P, P & P (not classic at all, made up yesterday). With my 2 best mates and I having a toddler each it was always going to be pretty low key, but pedals, park and pub turned out to be a pretty awesome afternoon – throw in some sunshine for good measure, happy days!
Indi-Rose always get pretty excited when the bikes come out and we’re really lucky to have a cycle route, which is an old railway line, right from the back of our house straight to the lovely park in the centre of town.
Slides, sandpit and swings in the sunshine for an hour or so was a great way to entertain the toddler bosses, and us to be honest. I just love it when the weather picks up and you can finally spend some time outside in the fresh air, really helps with the mum-guilt too.
Of course all that cycling, throwing toddlers down slides and trudging round the sand pit worked up a thirst for us parents, that it would’ve been (quite possibly) fatal if we’d not quenched. Onto the pièce de résistance of the ‘p’s – the pub!
On a sunny day like yesterday, classic beer garden weather, it would’ve been rude not to spend at least a little time in such an establishment. The afternoon was finished off perfectly, for the parents among us, with a couple of cold ones at our local The Sun.
To top it off, not a toddler tantrum in site. We do have crisps and the blessed Ipads (not for too long) to thank for that.
Yesterday was a great example of how life is about balance – in this case balancing the little people’s happiness at the park with ours in the pub.
An ace Saturday all round – enjoyed by little people and knackered parents alike.
Good vibes only! xx ✌️
